American actress/singer Beatrice Kay had a long, fruitful career in the entertainment industry that began at age six when she played "Little Lord Fauntleroy" with a local stock theater. Later, billed as "Honey Kuper" or "Honey Day," she played other theatrical roles. In film she started out at the Fort Lee film studios in New Jersey as a double for Madge Evans. Around that time she also began her Broadway career appearing in plays and musicals. For about four years during the early '40s, Kay hosted her own radio show and began appearing in such prestigious night clubs as the Moulin Rouge, Paris, Ciro's in LA and San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel. Kay was also a popular recording artist whose best known songs include "Mention My Name in Sheboygan" and "The Strawberry Bond." Kay made her film debut in 1945 in Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe (earlier Kay had appeared at the real Diamond Horseshoe and gained much publicity there for singing "Ta Ra Ra Boom De Ay" 1,100 times). She made only a couple films after that. Later Kay ran a dude ranch and then went into semi-retirement. After a terrible fire destroyed her home, she began working on television.
